HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review

We can now virtualize our environments and bring in all storage into those environments.


What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for us are the performance and efficiency. These servers work well even as you add more and more transactions to it.

How has it helped my organization?

Our cost savings are significant because it performs much better with greater efficiency. We can now virtualize our environments and bring in all storage into those environments.

What needs improvement?

The biggest area of improvement would be the cost. It's an expensive solution and the initial cost of ownership is high.

Another area of improvement is the loss in performance when bringing in different types of storage. You can get very high performance when you have all new storage in the same virtualized environment, but if you have legacy storage, the configurations have to be different and the performance will suffer. You end up losing a lot of the efficiency of the whole storage system.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

It deploys without any issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have the option to scale, though we haven't done it yet.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I still use Dell. We also looked at EMC.
